TONYA HARDING: STILL A BALL (KNEE) BREAKER

TONYA HARDING THEN

TONYA HARDING NOW

Newsday media critic Neil Best has posted a review of this month’s HBO appearance of Tonya Harding on his Watchdog blog. Harding is interviewed by Bernie Goldberg on the latest edition of “Real Sports.” The interview does not disappoint-that is if you’re a fan of watching a disgraced, double-digit-i.q.’d, chain smoking piece of trailer trash embarrass herself once again on national television.

For those of you who are too young to remember, Tonya Harding was a figure skater and once one of the most famous female athletes in the country:

Then she lost it all when her ex-husband and a collection of goons tried to literally whack her competition, ice princess Nancy Kerrigan on the leg and knock her out of the Olympics. The incident eventually evolved into the biggest scandal in Olympic history. The ex-husband and everybody else got caught and were found guilty of assault. Harding was found guilty of covering up evidence and hindering the police investigation of the case. Harding’s fall was complete:

However, through a series of legal maneuvers, Harding was allowed to compete against Kerrigan in the 1994 Olympics.The ensuing matchup of good (Kerrigan) versus evil (Harding) led to the biggest television ratings in history at the time. To this day, the Kerrigan/Harding Olympic matchup is the highest rated non Super Bowl sporting event in American history.

In recent years though Harding has faded into obscurity. She surfaces in the media from time to time but only as either a punchline (through her numerous bouts with the law), or a punching bag (as a celebrity boxer.)

Her name has become synonymous with dirty tricks. Both the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigns referred the “Tonya Harding option” during the presidential election. It was not a compliment.

During the recent HBO interview, Neil Best writes about this classic exchange between Bernie Goldberg and Tonya Harding:

 

Goldberg: “You’re a piece of work.”

Harding: “Do you think I care what other people think?”

Goldberg: “Apparently not.” 

Awesome!

I have to confess to having a soft spot for Harding despite her reprehensible Olympic past. After all, she was the only major celebrity and world class athlete who the average guy could look at and legitimately think, “I have a shot at that.”

At the peak of her fame and popularity Harding married a guy who drove a forklift. Harding’s hobbies are drinking 20 mugs of beer, playing video poker, chain smoking, and making sex tapes of herself. In other words she, not Nancy Kerrigan, is the All-American girl. At least if you live in Las Vegas.

    look at Tonya Harding making a big comeback…

  2. Sebastian Says:

    She seems like a nice person. She did wrong with her attempt to injure Nancy Kerrigan and I truly believe she’s paid her karmic debt. She’s gained a lot of weight and is not the hottie she used to be in the eyes of mainstream society. You reap what you sow that’s for sure. I wish her well in life. I’d be her bud. In fact …. I think she’s sexy but then again …. I like bigger women.

  3. Crazy Bear Says:

    I like Tonya. Screw what other people think. You think anyone’s negativity affects her in the least? She’s proven time and again that she is a survivor, not an easy feat, let me tell you. She doesn’t have a two-digit IQ either, that’s just a very rude, mean thing to say about someone. You shouldn’t be so damn judgemental, I’m sure you have a few skeletons lurking in your closet, otherwise you wouldn’t be human. Did you know that Albert Einstein dropped out of high school? I also dropped out of the regimented, institutional, brainwashing facility, and I will gladly discuss particle physics, hyperdimensional physics, theoretical physics, politics, theology, economics, abnormal psychology, first-response medical techniques; the ideas of Nicola Tesla, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Alistair Crowley; Poetry, Delta-Blues, Schrodinger’s Cat, Werner Von Braun, and I’ll show you why Einstein’s and Newton’s well-accepted theories have gaping holes in them, if you’d like. The point being don’t judge others! I don’t think Tonya is fat either. My ex-wife weighed 180 when I married her, 222 the last that I knew of, and no way is Tonya that big. Kirstie Alley, maybe, but not Tonya Harding. And (to quote The Anti-Nowhere League) So Fucing What?! That is what I like to call “Nunya”, as in Nunya Goddam Business.
    This has been one Bear’s opinion.
    People will still remember Tonya Harding long after they forget all about “Nancy Who?”

  4. FINALLY, A FEMALE FIGURE SKATER WHO’S A BIGGER LOSER THAN TONYA HARDING « The Sports Pig’s Blog Says:

    […] won the U.S. figure skating title in 1995. That was one year after famed skating bad girl Tonya Harding, the most controversial figure in skating history, won the same title. Harding is famous for her […]

  5. The Hawg! Says:

    I always liked Tonya Harding. She’s kind of like the John Daly of ice skating — took a dead boring sport and made it entertaining due to her constant antics and unpredictable behavior.

  6. V.E.G. Says:

    The father of Nancy Kerrigan dies, while my friend of a same last name (Harding) as Tonya Harding dies. Tonya Harding’s father is Albert Harding while my friend has a relative name Albert Harding as well.

    She did supposedly did something bad….like trying to help her hubby hide evidence AFTER the fact. Since then, all this woman has been doing is the same as anyone else without a supportsystem has been doing, to make living. Give it a rest, its been 15 years.
